Zhen Hua arrives in Rosyth

August 14 - ZPMC's heavy lift vessel Zhen Hua 24 has arrived at Forth Ports' Port of Rosyth, loaded with 36 large steel deck sections for use in the construction of the new Queensferry Crossing.

The 81,000 dwt and 40 m wide Zhen Hua 24, carrying steel deck sections ranging in weight from 270 to 350 tonnes, was the largest vessel ever to visit the Port of Rosyth, claimed Forth Ports.

In 2011, Forth Crossing Bridge Constructors (FCBC) chose the Port of Rosyth as its hub for transporting materials and equipment between the port and the jobsite for the Queensferry Crossing construction project.

The project has seen the port transformed with significant investment to strengthen the quayside storage areas to accommodate heavy loads, said Forth Ports.

"The significant investment by Forth Ports and the FCBC project team in strengthening the quayside storage areas at North Wall; security systems; and warehousing at the port; as well as the new improved road infrastructure that the opening of the new bridge will bring, will position Rosyth as a key location for specialist project work and heavy lift operations," said Forth Ports' chief executive, Charles Hammond.

The bridge project is expected to be completed and the bridge opened to traffic in March, 2016.
